The Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade today assured Cross Riverians that his administration will not miss the mark he promised the people at inauguration.
The governor in a state wide broadcast to mark his one year in office and the 2016 democracy day celebration, said his administration is fully reloaded to make Cross River state the construction hub of Africa.
Below is the full text of the short broadcast.
Fellow Cross Riverians,
Today marks the first anniversary of our administration.
In my inaugural speech, we shared with you our vision and dream for our beloved State. I assured you then that the mandate you had entrusted unto us will be held in solemn trust.
My team and I have committed to that promise as we embarked on the pursuit of happiness for you and for us.
One year into our administration today we can assure you that victory, prosperity, success and an end to poverty and unemployment is assured.
As sharp hunters we won’t miss our mark. As custodians of your collective trust, we would keep our promise.
Our passion, our vigour, our determination, our commitment, forthrightness and focus including our intellectual energies, are totally unquestionable.
Cross River State would indeed take the epicenter of the new African story. We would move Cross River beyond the boundaries of hope and jobs to the horizons and frontiers of content, bliss and happiness.
We are fully reloaded to make Cross River State the construction hub for Africa. It is indeed difficult at this point in time to hope perhaps that magic would be done.
But with sincere commitment, with the love and fear of God, with all your support, Cross River State indeed shall move from 3rd world to 1st world under my watch.
Thank you and God Bless
Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
Long Live Cross River State!
